The PSU Early Childhood Preschool Lab has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children Academy for Early Childhood Program Accreditation. Congratulations to all of the teachers, students, parents and children who make our successful program.
Applications are taken throughout the year in the FCS Department main office. The application can be accessed through the link below, printed out and returned to the FCS office or downloaded and sent as an attachment to our office to email@example.com. Children's names are placed on a waiting list and openings are filled as they become available. Contact the main office for more information.
The preschool has two sessions. The morning session will meet on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30 - 11:15. This class will be a mixed age group of 3 to 5 year olds. Parents have a choice of sending their child for three or four days.
The afternoon session meets Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:00 - 3:45. This class also is a mixed age group of 3 to 5 year olds. Parents have a choice of sending their child for three or four days.
Tuition for Fall 13 and Spring 14
The tuition rates are $450 per semester for 3 days per week and $500 per semester for 4 days per week.
Children must be at least 2-years-old to be placed on the waiting list. The length of the list varies from time to time, but a good estimate is about one year. (Because you apply late is not indicative of not being able to get into the program for an extended period.) There have been cases, although rare, that someone has applied during the summer and the child was enrolled for that fall.
The preschool is for children from the age of 3 to 5 years old with priority given to those in the year prior to kindergarten. The Program Director notifies parents in April if their child will be in the preschool for the following fall and spring. You will not be notified until we reach your child's name on the waiting list.
Where you can find us
The Preschool is located within the new Family & Consumer Sciences Building on Lindburg Street. Look for the playground on the south side of the building. The Department office is in 101 Family & Consumer Sciences Building.
